BRONCOS AGREE TO TERMS WITH TWO-TIME PRO BOWL G EVAN MATHIS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Tuesday agreed to terms with two-time Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis on a one-year contract, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

“Evan Mathis is an accomplished veteran who has played at a very high level for the last several seasons,” Elway said. “He will immediately make our team better, and we are excited to have him as part of the Denver Broncos.”

Mathis (6-foot-5, 301 pounds) is an 11th-year player who has appeared in 114 career regular-season games (78 starts) with Carolina (2005-07), Miami (2008), Cincinnati (2008-10) and Philadelphia (2011-14). He was selected by the Panthers in the third round (79th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft from the University of Alabama.

An Associated Press first-team All-Pro choice in 2013 and a Pro Bowl selection in each of the last two seasons with the Eagles, Mathis started at left guard in each of his last 56 games played with Philadelphia. His 5.5 sacks allowed since 2011 are the fewest among starting NFL guards during that span (min. 50 starts).  

Mathis was the second-ranked NFL offensive guard in 2014 according to ProFootballFocus.com after posting the top grade among his position group from 2011-13.

He played four seasons at Alabama, starting 38 games for the Crimson Tide over his final three seasons. He earned first-team All-Southeastern Conference honors as a senior in 2004 after converting from tackle to guard.

A graduate of Homewood (Ala.) High School, Mathis was born on Nov. 1, 1981.
